Double Hit is a damage-dealing Normal-type move. It is the signature move of Thoraxe.


Double Hit inflicts damage, hitting twice per use.

Bide and Counter will only acknowledge the second strike of this move.

If the first strike activates the target's Focus Sash, Focus Band, or Sturdy, the second one will cause the defending Pokémon to faint. A Focus Band can still activate again to prevent fainting, but this chance is independent of the previous one.

If the target has an ability that activates upon contact, each strike counts individually, enabling the ability to activate twice. If the target is holding a Rocky Helmet, the user is damaged for each strike.


The user slams the target with a long tail, vines, or tentacle. The target is hit twice in a row.
